The strawberries are responding well to the return of the sun. I had no trouble picking a big bucket today. With a good stretch of weather ahead there should be excellent amounts of ripe strawberries for the next week.

Phone (250)338-7750 or email to make an appointment to come and pick. Email is more reliable around here. If you've called and we haven't responded, please call again with your number or better yet, email.

Make the most of local, fresh berries. The strawberries' days are numbered. They rarely produce much beyond September. September has been hard on them but they are keeping up their ever-bearing label and not letting the rain do them in.

Happy last day of summer!
